something got lost when I posted at 12:32:32, so here goes again WRT the first part
MHK thought he knew something about it when he stated:
>...you need to consider a crushed neoprene -v- a trilam. The neoprene will compress at depth so as to limit any potential bouyancy characterisitics.The other comment that EINS seems to think is irrelevant, is to also distribute your overall weighting so as to balance the weight in that you will have enough ditchable weight in the event you need to ditch but yet still retain some so as to preclude you from rocketing to the surface should you ditch.<
What he's trying to say is, don't configure yourself in a way that leaves no weight to be ditched--something that was never raised in the sub-thread which talked about 'how to check if one is overweighted'
It was not about ditch strategies and never specified as that, therefore it was not relevant--outiside of the agreed context given at http://diver.net/bbs/messages/3271.shtml
Sorry for the mess of re-posting this to make sense.
